“I realized that once you have knowledge, you never own it, it’s almost like energy, it can’t be created, it cannot be destroyed, but you do have to transfer it.”Intifar Chowdhury
“No matter where I go, be it academia or outside academia, I will always have this thing that I will want to instruct. This sense of my teaching, taking knowledge as a power and possessing it as a duty to share it, I think that can be applicable and transferable to anywhere I go.”Intifar Chowdhury
